This morning, the entire camp traveled to our sister camp, Wohelo for the annual celebration of the camps’ founders. For many boys, it was their first visit to Wohelo while others had the chance to visit with sisters, mothers and cousins. The actual program lasted about 30 minutes and included the singing of various songs, several readings and a brief camp history. It was a very nice morning. The rain held off until it was time to load the buses again and then it was just a brief shower. In an attempt to bring you the sounds of camp, there is a video of the singing of Old Chief Timanous from this morning. There are 3 verses to the song, one sung by both camps, one Wohelo verse and one Timanous verse — everyone sings the chorus. The piano player is one of our campers who did a fantastic job. His rendition is almost exactly like Dave’s dad, Johnny Suitor who originally came to Timanous as the piano player. If your son was sitting in the middle of the group, you may not see him in the video.
